Which of B4 + MBB pays SWE/DS the most? I know they can't compare to FAANG, but just among these guys, who pays the most? Who has the best talent/tech implementations?
Mulling over an offer. Is work at MBB way more work / significantly more intense than Big 4? I feel like I have a good brand/rep at EY; not sure if effort to rebuild all of that at MBB is worth it?
Federal MBB🐠, were you given the opportunity to work any commercial projects your 1st year with the firm (if desired)? Had a final round years ago but friend advised me to stop the process given passion was retail. At the time switching practices was unheard of, have the times changed?

Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.

How much work, if any, does MBB do with Bill & Melinda Gates, World Bank, USAID, etc.? Could one specialize in doing this type of work?
How does EYs senior manager translate into a MBB model? Working alongside an EY SM who thinks they’re a junior/associate partner but whose responsibilities seem to match an EM. Also is it normal for Big 4s to ignore juniors? This SM refuses to listen to anything I say and gets annoyed anytime I speak in a meeting or when I said I was talking to the partner directly - whereas my McK team proactively encourages me too.

To those of you in MBB, how do you treat yourself with the wealth you're making? Champagne with your Maccas? Constantly ordering Grab/ubereats/deliveroo is a privilege isnt it? (Assuming lockdown situation is in place)
Hi everyone, hope you are doing well. I applied to BCG and received an email from them telling me I was on the waitlist for interviews. What is the chances of getting an interview if I am on the waitlist? I am not well connected with BCGers, any recommendations on who to contact? Do any one of you think they can help me or connect me to someone willing to help from the inside? I applied to Atlanta, Boston, and Miami. I am on a F1 visa which makes things harder, MBB being kind of my only options.

I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
Question on EO, heard that portion of EO issued on 6/22 has been rolled back. We can now apply for visa stamping at the consulate, if open. Is this true?

Question for big 4 partners/Managing directors. Is becoming partner or MD a choice or if partner role is not available an employee accepts MD role? Also,are there any post retirement benefits for MD?
Livid & need to vent. Had a call with a client, I am the attorney that manages their cases. A male attorney was on the call with me as well. I try to explain something to client multiple times and he keeps cutting me off to explain his question again (even though I am answering the question but for the interruptions). Male attorney jumps in and explains exactly same of what I am saying, male client listens intently, no interruptions, then essentially ignores me the rest of the call. Raaaaage 🤬
